If women do it once they can do it more
What record was it that the Chinese girl beat? I cannot locate winning times for any of the races. I would like to know.

viktfar, I have been trying to find the event you are talking about. Unfortunately, there are no charts I can find on internet that give a good idea with cross reference. My local newspaper gives no real coverage. I would like to know which event (distance) a chinese girl won that was faster than the men's gold medal time. I am sure you are correct as I often compare times in track (my main interest sport) and find women could have placed against men within the top four or five. Recently, two women (sisters) took second and third against men in a triathlon in a neighboring city. I know that many long distance records in swimming are held by women and ultra marathons (cross country foot races) have been won by women.

Girls have been closing the strength and speed gap and many were wondering when this would happen. Some would say in 50 years, others longer but it's now happening. The strength and speed gains over the years have been more impressive with girls. They will in time overtake the men. Pound for pound they (female) have stronger more durable muscles. Men have the size advantage for now but you can see this is pure pound for pound strength advantage she has. In time it will be female that holds all speed records in water.

I don't know how tall the Chinese girl is, or how tall Brian Lochte. In many cases, the women's record holders in both swimming and track, are much shorter (smaller) than the men's record holders. If you measure heights per second, the women are actually faster. I think it is just a matter of time before women's records will begin to actually overtake men's records.

She only swam faster for the last 50. Ryan was still faster overall. Having said that, when I was in high school ten years ago, the two fastest swimmers on our team were me and this girl (free and breast). We swam against each other the whole season and she regularly beat me. She seemed to get faster as the season went on. The other girls on our team were good too, not as fast as me, but faster than the other guys. Swimming for those girls seemed so natural.

In the 2012 Olympics, Ye Shiwen (16yo, China)won a gold medal and set a women's world record in the 400m individual medley with a time of 4 minutes 28.3 seconds. Lochte won a gold medal in the same event with a significantly faster time of 4 minutes 5.8 seconds. For the final 50m, Ye's time was 28.83 seconds, while Lochte's was 29.15 seconds.

I forget the year when or where I read it, and it is ancient history. But the part I remember was that most, if not all, of the Olympic swimming records of Johnny Weismuller -- "Tarzan" -- had been "broken by teenage girls" ........ Sure, the training regimens have changed quite a bit, male and female, since Tarzan's time. There are probably a hundred thousand girls on the average high school swim-teams in 2012 who have better timings in any event he ever attempted ......... I can't speak about swimming since I was always poor at it. But I ALSO remember, from the era before computers and chat forums like this existed, reading something else. It was from one of those Sports or Dports Illustrated magazines. Some expert, a coach maybe, suggested that females just might pull ahead of male marathon runners -- for good. It makes sense. All that propulsion with less weight to be affected by gravity .... better MPG ? Lol. It's a thought ........ That is still one impressive feat, and maybe a sign of things to come, by Ms. Shewin.

Lochte was slpwing down the last 50 meters because he was way in front.

There have been several moments in the Olympics which bring out the increasing threat Women are posing to males in athletics. One was the Chinese Female swimmer Ye Shiwen who was faster than the male gold medalist in the last 50 meters of the 400 meter race. And then there was the Female gymnast McKayla Maroney who flew higher than gold medalist male gymnast Kohei Uchimura on the same vault. These achievements would have been seen as impossible in earlier times, but they are becoming more and more common. Also keeping in mind that these Females are smaller and less muscular looking than their male counterparts shows the clear superiority of Women on a pound for pound, inch for inch basis. WHen males and Females are the same size, the male has no chance!

Don't forget long distance swimming. There is a race every year in NYC called the Swim Around Manhattan. It is also sometimes referred to as ?The Battle of the Sexes?. It is a marathon swim pitting top men against the top women long distance swimmers. For the past 3 years, the women have beaten the men! That's right, boys, the women have dominated! I am a female swimmer, and like swimdude above, I swam a few years ago in high school and college. I am 32 now, but still swim for a Masters team. I love to win, but I especially love defeating a male! It is soooo sweet to pass a male in the water, see him try to catch up, but can't, and I just leave him behind.
KimSwimmerAug 07 2012 1:13pm
So what . why you make it very big deal woman now like men in every thing so i think it could happened and we will see it more and more
LiliAug 07 2012 5:47pm
I don't know how it is now, but for many years, women had held the record for swimming across the English Channel, especially both ways. There is a woman who does ultra marathons of 100 miles or more and she beats everybody, males included. In fact in he ultra marathons, women are almost always among the leaders.
ObservingAug 08 2012 1:06am
I wonder if swimdude got an erection after the girl beat him?
janiAug 08 2012 6:56am
@jani, why your question? have you every seen a guy get an erection because a girl beat him?

There is a part of the male psyche which responds to powerful women with sexual arousal because he realizes that a woman who is more powerful than males is good for the survival of the species. He wants to give it up to her!
